“… We are disappointed in the end result to lose this game but we will get back to work on Monday morning. .
“…We felt like we squandered some opportunities throughout the game not just on the final drive.”
“… Luckily it’s still a young season even though we are obviously disappointed. Talan and Kaden Gillispie both made some huge plays on the last drive. Pollock is growing each week and is not a finished project just yet.”
